1…………> California Suing: Sessions
In a deliberate legal and political confrontation with the nation’s most populous state, that has repeatedly blocked its plans to step up enforcement actions in the workplace and against criminal aliens, Trump’s DOJ led by AG Jeff Sessions has sued California for using state laws that contradict the “supremacy clause” of the US Constitution.
“The Department of Justice and the Trump Administration are going to fight these unjust, unfair, and unconstitutional policies,” Attorney General Jeff Sessions is expected to tell California law enforcement officers.
“We are fighting to make your jobs safer and to help you reduce crime in America.”
The state’s Democratic governor, Jerry Brown, fired back: “At a time of unprecedented political turmoil, Jeff Sessions has come to California to further divide and polarize America. Jeff, these political stunts may be the norm in Washington, but they don’t work here. SAD!!!
2…………> Globalists Exit Trump: Cohn
White House national economic council director Gary Cohn will resign from his post, in yet another high-profile departure from the Trump administration in recent weeks in a sign of opposition to Trump’s planned tariffs on imports of steel and aluminium, after trying to get the president to change course.
“It has been an honour to serve my country and enact pro-growth economic policies to benefit the American people, in particular, the passage of historic tax reform,” Cohn said.
“I am grateful to the President for giving me this opportunity and wish him and the Administration great success in the future.”
“Will be making a decision soon on the appointment of new Chief Economic Advisor. Many people wanting the job – will choose wisely!”, the president tweeted.
“I like conflict,” Trump later said in a joint press conference with Swedish Prime Minister Stefan Lofven.
“Many, many people want every single job,” Trump said, adding that “there will be people that change,” but said, “Believe me, everybody wants to work in the White House. They want a piece of the Oval Office, they want a piece of the West Wing.”
The White House turnover in its first 14 months has been significant, with Hope Hicks stepping down, the senior communications official Josh Raffel and staff secretary Rob Porter leaving their posts, and finally speechwriter David Sorenson, who left the administration after domestic abuse allegations.
3…………> Execution Tuesday: Egypt
In 2017, 49 “political prisoners” were hanged in Egypt, more than double the number executed in 2016, mostly convicted on terror-related charges or for attempts to overthrow the state. By the end of February, a court sentenced 21 suspected extremists to death for planning terror attacks, ranking Egypt as sixth globally in the number of people executed, joining China, Iran, Iraq, Pakistan, and Saudi Arabia, with United Nations expressing a “deep shock” at the rate of executions and lack of due process in military and civilian trials.
Ismail Khalil does not have any photographs of his son Lotfy, 24, who was hanged along with three other men in a long-running case where they were charged for detonating a bomb, killing three students and injuring two others from the Kafr El Sheikh Military Academy
“As soon as I walked in I saw two people from his case who were executed and Lotfy wrapped in a blanket,” he says, visibly emotional as he describes the harrowing scene.
“I kissed his forehead, then the other people I knew, going from one corpse to the next, crying and kissing their heads and feet.”
4…………> The “Plastic Holocaust”: World’s Oceans
Scuba diver Rich Horner social media video shows him swimming through a huge “slick” of plastic floating in clear waters at a popular dive spot in Indonesia, frequented by manta rays which come to get cleaned in masses of floating plastic garbage off the coast of Nusa Penida, only some 15 miles of water separating it from the island of Bali and its capital Denpasar.
Murdoch University researcher Elitza Germanov said microplastics contain toxic chemicals that, if ingested, could alter biological processes in the animals, such as growth, development and reproduction.
“We are still trying to understand the magnitude of the issue,” Ms Germanov said.
“Microplastic contamination has the potential to further reduce the population numbers of these species, many of which are long-lived and have few offspring throughout their lives.”
5…………> The Bashful Spy: Texas
Weldon Marshall, 43, of the Dallas, Texas area, entered a plea today of guilty to one count of unlawfully retaining national defence information while working for a military contractor.
Marshall served in the U.S. Navy from approximately January 1999 to January 2004, during which time he had access to highly sensitive classified material, including documents describing U.S. nuclear command, control and communications. Those classified documents, including other highly sensitive documents classified at the secret level, were downloaded onto a compact disc labelled “My Secret TACAMO Stuff.” He later unlawfully stored the compact disc in a house he owned in Liverpool.
